Well he is getting his chance in "THE RED AND BLUE" there fore he will not have me death-riding him just yet, I hope he has a blinder cause we need a win this week no matter what.
Knights by 30.
Denniss to start and ross on the bench. strange.
Would think Felise or yates will come into the bench and toss to play centre with deniss dropping out.
Really like Herman at lock
I like Guerra on an edge aswell
I can't recall Brown playing games with the lineup announced, then changing it prior to game day.
So I am guessing we are going to see Denniss retain the Centre spot with Ross on the bench.
Brown is a puzzling coach sometimes.
Worth turning up early to see under 20s this week.
With reserve grade having the week off the table topping under 20s have got Saulo, Hoy, Loughrey, Andrews, Dark, Alifa all playing 20s, as well as Heath Gibbs back from Wests.
With a bit of luck Fermor will come through SOO well and want to play too.
We will have about 17 attacking weapons in that side.
Anyone else have visions of Billy cutting out Watson's face and replacing them with Lamb lol.
Ill be getting there early to watch 20's should be great to see.
It will also be interesting to see if Levi plays 80 and how he handles it if he does.
maybe the rossdog is going to play some hooker lol in saying that i dont know if he can pass but his scoots out of dummy half against tired forwards could be lethal.
Yeah there’ll have to be a reshuffle of that side. Can’t carry Buhrer and Ross on the bench.
Start Ross at left centre with Denniss and King dropping out for Yates and Felise.
toohey reckons Dennis is playing so

Meet Nick Meaney: Knights debutant No.298
Brown: Why Watson is at home in the halves
Has Brown named his starting 17 and 4 standby players and changed the squad prior to game, without injury causing it?
From what I can recall he has been true to his named squad earlier in the week.
Ross won't be playing hooker, Levi and Buhrer to interchange there. No idea why you would play Ross from the bench and leave Denniss starting Centre. Why the Bleep wouldn't you play a third forward on the bench like Yates, or even give the new guy a run, Buhrer on the bench is the utility/injury cover.
Ross will come in for Dennis and Felise should get Heighno or Lillymans spot I reckon
Most times Brown dropped in a single debutant last year he named them on the extended bench and dropped them in at the last minute.
He'll drop Denniss, start Ross and put Felise on the bench an hour before kickoff.
Ive just joined this site, im a Knights tragic. The last 7 times ive watched our team live weve been beaten. Ive just got tickets for Old Boys day vs Dragons, and hoping the boys can finish on a high. Injuries have killed us this year, at full strength we would be on the cusp of a fairytale. Not to be this year though.
